The capital of Thailand, this sprawling metropolis consists of shining Buddhist temples, intense culture, endless street vendors and markets, lush parks and opportunities to enjoy inexpensive, excellent Thai food everywhere you look. Mix in some mind-boggling traffic, a modern business district, hip cafes, peaceful canals and nightlife that never seems to end and the result is a city whose complexity and energy has attracted remote workers for years. You can find it all in Bangkok and you're never far away from other great destinations in Thailand and Southeast Asia as well.

It's on the small side but they have both indoor and outdoor seating along with plenty of plug outlets and some of the best coffee in the city!
By Trey P. for Artis Coffee cafe. Workspaces
A cafe that is pretty much designed for coworking with solid internet, a lot of plug outlets and a quiet atmosphere. The food is only okay but the coffee is good so it works for me!
By Trey P. for Storyline Cafe cafe. Workspaces
Large coworking space with a pretty good set up and all the amenities you would need. Could be a little friendlier and if you're only there for 1 day, you don't get a real desk to sit at.
By Ashwin N. for Launchpad Co. coworking space. Workspaces
Great, friendly cafe with plenty of people working on their laptops here. Good wifi, excellent coffee and just a very nice overall vibe. One of my favorite places to work in the city.
By Hanne C. for Luka Bangkok cafe. Workspaces
Most foreigners in Bangkok love the food. One of the best ways to meet other remote workers is to post in one of the FB groups that you want to try out a local restaurant you heard about and see who wants to join you. You'll almost always find people who want to join!
